As stated in Introduction To “UBS” Study the following is: My opinions posted on this part of the study may or may not be my final feeling on the matter. I’ll be writing (or recording video) as I go, so it’s inevitable that some concepts may not have long enough to settle in my mind so a final thought or feeling can be reached. Some new and non-institutional concepts are going to be introduced, compared to the Bible, looked at with logic, and commented on. Whether or not you agree with these concepts are completely irrelevant. The purpose of this study is not whether you or I agree with the said study or with each other, but to help bring us closer to each other as brethren and ultimately closer to God. Your participation in this study is welcome and will be greatly appreciated.

Everyone in the Christian world agrees God is our father. God is triune. There consists God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Spirit (Holy Spirit). All Christians also agree that God created all that is. There are trivial differences in denominations of translation/version of the Bible that should be used. As you all know, I prefer the King James Version. But many questions arise. Who is God? Where is God? Where do we go when we die? Is there life after death? And so on. In this part of the study Im going to mention some concepts and ideas offered in the study source.

I ask that you please read on with an open-mind. My personal bias got in my way of what exactly the study source was suggesting. It took me awhile thinking it over and comparing it to the Bible before I feel I finally came to understand what is being suggested. Some of the concepts are admittedly hard to swallow but equally-so makes sense. There’s certain answers that are relatively hard to explain. Though I came to some certain conclusions of my own using just the Bible before reading this study-source, this study-source concludes the same answers in a slightly different fashion.

To better understand what the study-source is suggesting, not only do we need to put our personal bias to the side, we also need to realize that there are many books removed from the Bible that very well contain these very answers the study-source introduces and attempts to explain. For verification of the fact books have been removed from the Bible, all you need is to read the Bible. In numerous locations to Old Testament prophets as well as Jesus Himself and the Apostles make reference to books that are seemingly non-existant. It’s not that these books don’t exist but that they have been removed by man centuries ago in an attempt to use faith and religion for their own power-hungry and greedy purposes.

To answer where God is, the study-source goes into great detail. At first it is hard to grasp. In the Bible we are told He is in the heavens. We have wrongly looked at this as we are the center and the Heavens are our skies or just outside the reaches of our planet.

Consider the concept that there is a center to Creation. In the center of this creation is the residence of God. Where God physically and spiritually resides as a being. On His own planet in His own area of creation in which all of creation rotates around as Earth rotates around the Sun. This planet created by God for God. From this planet He is able to orchestrate all missions of creation and watch over all of creation.
Now, this isn’t to say He is not within us. He most certainly is. In each and everyone of is a piece of God. It is this piece of God Himself that enables us to seek Him, feel Him, and know Him. It is this piece of God within us that God is able to see and hear and feel all that we do. When we suffer, God is suffering as well through us. He knows when we are suffering. It is through this piece of God in us that we are able to communicate with God and God with us.

Not to different from the Bible.

To answer who is God is tough. God is our father through the Father. God is our brother through the Son. God is therefore our father and brother at the same time. God the Father first created Himself by an act of free-will. The Father than created the Son in like manner. The Son and the Father than created the Spirit. So the Father is the father of the Son and Spirit. The Son is then the brother but also the mother of the Spirit. That is not to say the Son is female. It is being said the Son is the mother to the Spirit in the understanding we have of how children are born. But whereas the Father is both physical and spiritual, the Son is only spiritual.
In otherwords, God the Father created Himself out of light-energy and physical matter. He than made the Son of light-energy. The Father and Son than made the Spirit of light-energy; but the Spirit also has the ability to experience physical. Not in and of Himself but in Gods children. Through us the Spirit experiences physical.
Each individual part of God can act independantly of each other or co-operatively. Nonetheless, any and all actions persued by any or all combinations of the parts of God relate to Gods plan. No part of God can independantly alter or create a new plan of the Father except the Father.
God is and has the utmost unconditional Love for all of His creation. And is extremely merciful. He is only seen as anything else out of sheer ignorance. Humans seem to have a problem understanding and comprehending love and any acts done through love.

Not to different from the Bible, yet more defined.

Is there life after death? Where do we go when we die?
These must be two of the most common, yet seemingly hardest, questions ever asked. There really isn’t an easy answer. To begin to fathom the concept portrayed in the study-source you must believe that there is a potential of other worlds and beings, other than angels and demons, that may very-well exist as part of Gods creation.

According to the study-source not everyone survives physical death. In order to survive physical-death you must live as God-like as possible. You must yearn to be evermore God-like and closer to God.
If you do not you are judged after physical-death by the Gods tribunals and finally God Himself. If found guilty, you simply cease to exist.
If you do, upon physical-death you ascend to a higher existance until you finally reach God. Before reaching God you will be rendered unconcious and when you awaken you will be in Gods presence.

There are many orders of beings, physical and spiritual, at different levels of existance with different purposes. Our purpose as physical beings to concentrate on God. To strive to be like God and do Gods will. There are different orders of beings that are sent to us, in different ways, to help us along in our journey. Being here on Earth is only the beginning of that journey.

This was similar to the Bible but explained. It can be a hard concept to grasp but why would you not consider it when there are countless Earth-like planets out there recently discovered? Why would God only put life on Earth when He created so much more? Did it not occur to you that our creation story is only that of Earth, and similar creations could have happened on other worlds? Does it not also make sense that there would also be a creation before creation, a genesis to Genesis?

I understand these concepts may be hard to grasp. The study-source suggests this is because (a) we are physical beings and therefore can only understand concepts of the physical (b) we are a young civilization, a relatively young creation. Similar to that of a toddler in relation to our understanding. In otherwords, because of how young we are, as a whole, theyre exist concepts and realities that we simply cannot yet comprehend and (c) the Lucifer Rebellion (which I cannot comment on because that is covered further down in the study-source. When I get to it, I will state what it says. What it does say is the Lucifer Rebellion was more or less based on our planet and disrupted Gods creation). As hard as these concepts may be to grasp we must keep an open-mind so we may determine what Truth is.

Study-source suggests that not only is there are orders of higher and lower beings, it also suggests that there are planets on which these beings reside. God has 7 superuniverses which contain the universes. Our universe is said to be at the edge of created creation, therefore being the youngest of creation. Our universe contains 619 inhabited planets. We were 606th to be inhabited suggesting there are 605 more advanced civilizations than ours, and 13 less adanvced. Each universe can hold as many as 1,000 inhabited planets, suggesting that our universe may some day have an additional 381 civilizations younger than our own. There are also new universes being created just outside the reaches of ours. Once complete, no longer puts us at the edge of creation.

In the center of these superuniverses is master universe. It is the central universe in which God resides. God, the Son, and Spirit reside on a planet in the center of this central universe of universes where they govern over all that is. Everything we know that is and everything we have yet to discover.
In this central universe are also planets in which each order of higher beings reside. Those beings that work for God. At the same time God is there He is also here. He is everywhere at the same time.
He is also in the past, present, and future all at the same time. God and these higher beings do not act in time and space. Some beings act in space but not time. Some in time but not space. Some in neither space nor time. This is what makes it possible for them to travel so far almost instantly. It is also why we cannot always see them, though we may feel their presence. They exist on different realms of existance than we do, which unfortunately, only few humans seem to be able to comprehend.

Now many will ask, if God exists in all space and all time at the same time, then why does evil occur? The answer is both simple yet complicated. Evil exists because of the dual fact that what we as humans percieve as evil isnt necessarily evil to God and all of creation; and the Lucifer Rebellion (which will be covered in a later study paper).
There exists a natural-order of preservation. Certain acts must happen for the survival of creation. Everything we experience, so does God through us. God does not wish harm for any of us. He wishes for each of us to fully know and understand Him and to reach Him. God has mansions for each of us for whenever it is we may finally reside there.

Nonetheless, certain things must happen for the survival. Consider it as a single human family for instance. Everything is going great. Your father continues to purchase more land, more material objects for himself and the family. Then things get a bit rough. To sustain the family, your father begins selling what he has for the survival of the family. You may have to go without some material objects or even lose some land. Cut back on vacations and expensive endeavors. But by your fathers doing this, you remain sheltered and fed. He does whats necessary out of love of your family to get through the rough time.
With God it is the same concept. Things happen that are necessary for the survival of the whole. Everything in creation is connected, whether physically, spiritually, or mindal. And therefore everything that happens in one area of creation affects all of creation. Many of these actions for the survival of the whole are wrongfully called evil by humans. It is not evil, but necessary for the benefit of the whole.

Then there is the Lucifer Rebellion which I cannot speak on as of yet since I haven’t yet reached that area of the study-source. The Lucifer Rebellion will be spoken of in a future study post after I have the chance to read about it in the study-source.

With all of the technological advancements being made, we will soon be able to increasingly see more planets, and even past the borders of our universe with our telescopes. We may even be able to travel at the speed of light and visit other planets in other solar systems, galaxies, and possibly even other universes. However, we will only be able to see and communicate with other physical beings. Some planets may appear as though they are not inhabited due to the fact that spiritual beings may reside on such planets and will not be able to be seen by the human eyes nor heard by the human ears. Nonetheless, these planets are still inhabited. Spiritual beings do reside on actual physical planets.
Seeking Gods planet is futile. Seeking His central universe in which Paradise resides is futile. It is futile because there are dark-matter objects that neither absorb light nor reflect light surrounding Gods central universe, therefore making it virtually invisible to the human eye.

Gods central universe has no established government. All beings who reside there have made it past the scrutiny of all universal tribunals and have achieved perfection, government in the central universe is not necessary. Only administration.
Our life on Earth, and all life on other planets, is a learning experience. The planets serve more or less as schools of the Father. As we advance in our education, spiritual evolution, and ultimate ascension, we draw ever-closer to Gods central universe and ultimately Gods planet.

Much as we do, the beings that reside in the central-universe worship God. Though they are sent to help us and other beings, they too live lives seperate of their mission much as we do. Just as we go to work, so do they. Just as we vacation, so do they.
These beings are responsible for teaching and ministering to us to aid us in our spiritual evolution. As we go, we ultimately reach perfection. Our time on Earth is a test.

Only God the Father knows exactly how many inhabitable or inhabited planets there are. He calls them each by name and number. Outside His central-universe are 7 superuniverses which contain local universes. Our local universe is in the seventh superuniverse. There are approximately 1,000 inhabited or inhabitable planets in each local-universe. Each planet is presided over, or governed, by a Planetary Prince. Aprroximately 100,000 of these planets make up a Constellation which is governed by Most Highs and a Faithful of Days (an ambassador of the God Trinity). Each local universe consists of 100 Constellations, or approximately 10,000,000 (10 Million) inhabitable planets. Each local-universe is governed over by a Creator Son and Union of Days (representative of the God Trinity). Each Minor Sector of a superuniverse is comprised of 100 local universes, or approximately 1,000,000,000 (1 Billion) inhabitable planets. These Minor Sectors are governed over by Recents of Days, or Supreme Trinities. The Major Sectors are comprised of 100 Minor Sectors, or approximately 100,000,000,000 (100 Billion) inhabitable planets. Each Major Sector is governed over by 3 Perfections of Days, Supreme Trinities. The superuniverse is comprised of 10 Major Sectors, or approximately 1,000,000,000,000 (1 Trillion) inhabitable planets. The superuniverses are governed over by three Ancients of Days. The Grand Universe consists of the 7 superuniverses, consisting of approximately 7,000,000,000,000 (7 Trillion) inhabitable planets. And 1,000,000,000 (1 Billion) inhabited spheres (planets) of the central-universe. The 7 superuniverses are administered over by the Seven Master Spirits. The central-universe spheres governed over by the Eternals of Days. This is not suggesting God Himself isnt governing over us. God is in us and in each of the beings sent to govern over us, the beings sent to teach us, and all other beings. God is omnipresent.
There are 7 superuniverses, approximately 70 Major Sectors, approximately 7,000 (7 thousand) Minor Sectors, approximately 700,000 (700 thousand) Local Universes, approximately 70,000,000 (70 Million) Local Constellations, approximately 7,000,000,000 (7 Billion) Local Systems, approximately 7,000,000,000,000 (7 Trillion) inhabitable planets.
The Milky Way of our universe is central part of the superuniverse. Roughly 8 sectors of the superuniverse have been identified by Earth astronomers. Our sector is located in a dense star cloud called Sagittarius.
Sun-forming nebulae give birth to as many as 100 Million suns. There are an endless amount of new suns, planets, and local-universes being created. There are 10 different categories of planets and planet creation. Much of this information is scientific in nature in the study-source. At the end of the study when the study-source is revealed, you may pickup your own copy of the study-source or download a free version from one of the links that will be provided to read about this and everything else mentioned here in-depth.
Three planets within our solar-system, including Earth, are capable of holding life.

Some planets are built for a purpose, as opposed to being created. In each local-universe are planets built for the purpose of teaching ascending beings. As we ascend towards God, we go from being physical beings to spiritual beings. Upon leaving Earth, we take residence in a mansion on one of these university-type planets. What is commonly referred to as heaven here on Earth. In these universities we continue our education of a higher understanding about God, the universes, and our new bodies and associated abilities. Upon graduating from the final class, we finally reach Gods planet and meet God face to face. Based on our abilities and training recieved, is the job God gives us. Despite how many inhabited planets may exist, we are administered and loved as if our planet was the only one.

There is a rather large and unique universal government of God by God overseen by different orders of beings. At this time it is so vast of information it would be near impossible for me to summarize it all in this post without copying word for word from the study-source. You will be able to read about Gods government in the study-source at the end of the study unless Im able to explain Gods universal government in summary in a future study-post.
What can be said is this government has nothing to do with man-made governments made by the wealthy, greedy, power-hungry, godless elite of our planet. A true government is that which is made according to Gods plan, not mans. Many Bible-readers misunderstand the concept of government, particularly Romans 13 from the Bible. The section of the study-source on government explains what has been misunderstood and why.

That’s it for this week. UBS #2 coming next week.
